Originally published on Green Building Elements

This is an eye-turning passive house design, thanks to the design from Marie Ljubojevic and Lauren McCunney at NK Architects. Of note, this home uses 75 to 80 percent less energy than homes built to current code standards.

From the architect. Park Passive is Seattle’s first certified Passive House and one of Washington State’s most energy efficient homes. The striking home in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood was designed by Marie Ljubojevic and Lauren McCunney at  and built by Seattle green builder, Sloan Ritchie of Cascade Built. According to Ritchie, the modern design of the 2,710 square foot home on a small urban infill lot, measuring just 2,000 square feet, is “as bold as the Passive House concept itself.”
